I went on a little adventure today to Joe’s Place Farms, a local marketplace on the east side of Vancouver, Washington. Even though my Portland apartment is too small to house a full-sized Christmas tree, I couldn’t resist faking my way through the experience of buying a first real tree. Joe’s Place Farms is the perfect spot to do holiday shopping. They have pumpkins, real trees, fake trees, snow-covered trees, pink trees, purple trees, and the list goes on. The best part of Joe’s Place Farms though is their mini market. Snacks on snacks on snacks. All their bites (honey, maple syrup, jam, popcorn, etc.) are made on-site. The holidays are probably the best time to shop around as the interior is decked out in Christmas lights. If you’re ever in the Vancouver, WA area, I highly suggest stopping by! It’s Instagram heaven.
